We've been very busy out in the vineyard and in the winery, too. Here's what's been happening:
Saturday – Andrew rounded up a crew for Sunday 5.00am start to pick the balance of Shiraz at Parola’s vineyard. 43 tons of Shiraz at 15.8 baume and the fruit is sensational.
Monday, we pressed 30 ton of Rutherglen Shiraz and it is a cracker.
late last week we picked 30 tons of Rutherglen Shiraz @ 15.5 beaume and it is looking brilliant.
Finally, Vintage is really underway and the cellar is going to smell awesome.
Riesling is still fermenting away slowly.
Here's a photo of Josh head first into the press giving it a clean out. With all the rain outside we thought we'd keep Josh inside where it was 'dry' - haha!
